I ordered a really large commission in the hopes that looking at this other artist's interpretations of my characters would help me grow as an artist. Eventually as it took longer and longer for work to begin on the commission I experimented with my technique and tried lots of new things to accomplish what I wanted out of the commission on my own. Four years later I felt i'd accomplished everything i wanted to get out of it and spent another couple months chasing after what had been completed on the project (turns out about 1/70th of the project's original goal.).
This picture really is just putting a lot of the things I've learned since then into one image. While the commission was a headache and cost me a lot of money it was a motivator that helped me get to where I am now and that, to me, is totally worth it.
